Profile

Dr Cassie Wilson joined the University of Bath in 2008 as a Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Biomechanics. She is currently the Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching) in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Cassie’s research focus falls into two main themes namely; optimisation of athletic performance and the understanding of movement coordination and its associated variability. Elite athletes compete at or close to the limits of human performance and Cassie’s research focuses on improving understanding of athletic-based activities with the ultimate goal of overcoming these limits. This is achieved through both theoretical and experimental methods. The nature of movement variability within sport and exercise has been received considerable attention in recent years and Cassie’s research uses innovative methods of analyses to investigate the role of this variability from both a performance and injury perspective. In 2004 Cassie was awarded the "New Investigator Award" by the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport.

Research interests

  • Optimisation of athletic based performance
  • Analyses of movement coordination and its associated variability
  • The application of biomechanical principles to training theory
  • Injury predictors in different populations
